The error message appears because the numbering properties are inconsistent.

Open all of your documents and the book. Start with your book and make sure the 
numbering is correct (from your book, right click each document and select 
Numbering from the menu to view the numbering properties). When you are done, 
select all your documents within the book. Right click your mouse and click 
save from the menu.

Open each document and then check the numbering properties (Format > Document > 
Numbering) to ensure they are correct. Save each document as you go along.

Update your book.

This should take care of the error message.

Subject: RE: Inconsistent Numbering Properties

Hi Stephen,

I don't think there is any way to avoid this. When you have a common document 
in your book, its page numbering will be set to how it was numbered the last 
time it was updated, either in the current book or any other book that it is 
contained in. That is where the mismatch may come from and FrameMaker is simply 
warning you about it. It should not be necessary to open the document and 
change its properties; when you update the book and dismiss the Inconsistent 
Numbering Properties dialog box, it should make the document's numbering the 
way it is supposed to be for that book.

Subject: Inconsistent Numbering Properties


This subject must come up regularly. I use the certain documents in several 
books. When I update those books I have Inconsistent Numbering Properties.

I open the documents that are named. I set their numbering properties as in the 
book. But the problem is then put to another document, or same one.

I only use documents within books. Is there some way to tell FrameMaker or a 
book to ignore the document numbering - use only the numbering done in the book.

It would be great to understand/solve this once and for all.

Thank you for any advice and have a good weekend,
